Day 29

The run-through of my presentation today was okay. Unfortunately I ran over time and didn't even get to my demonstration of the site. Hopefully I can compensate better tomorrow and time everything better. Wish me luck!

Day 28

Things are starting to wrap up here and today I completely finished my presentation as well as the first draft of my conference paper. The Hawaiian Luau was really fun today, including the s'mores and veggie pizza!

Day 27

I made some final adjustments to my presentation. Dr. Kerekes has definitely changed my perspective on how to create a comprehensible and informative Power-Point. I also fixed one graphical bug in the website and made a ton of progress on the conference paper. Passing all of my knowledge over to Steve will be very interesting.

Day 26

I'm back from Boston! My trip was awesome, Boston is a really amazing city and the subway (or "T" in Bostonian) was an adventure in itself.

As for my work here, things are beginning to wrap up. My meeting today with Dr. Kerekes was extremely helpful, especially with tips related to my presentation. My main focus right now is completing the conference paper for my project. Also, I pared down my slide count in my presentation from 22 to 14.

Day 25

Today consisted mostly of editing the content of the website. I have input almost all of the instructions and descriptions to the best of my ability (having only been involved with remote sensing for the summer). It doesn't look like installing phpBB3 (a php-based forum) will be very easy or even viable, as it might create too much traffic for the web server here. My presentation is close to done, but it might actually be too long.

Day 24

After meeting with Dr. Kerekes today, I ironed out some more specifics in the site, including the password reset function, including radiance and reflectance data int he download, and including the "unclassified" class in confusion matrices.

My trip to Carnegie Melon was great! Its one-year-old CS Gates building is remarkable. I'll be leaving on Wednesday for the week to check out Boston colleges.

Day 23

I fixed admin deletion of uploads and personal upload sorting today! Also, I'm leaving early to travel to Pittsburgh today to visit Carnegie-Mellon. I'll blog about my trip when I get back!

Day 22

I finished the planned functionality of the site today! Also, I completed eleven slides of my presentation. I will link the site once I have permission from my adviser and replace the content.

Day 21

Today was really productive overall. I implemented the top scores and the ability to view the confusion matrix of each. I just have a couple bugs to fix and content to fill. Also, I have been planning my presentation for the final day.

Today I participated in the visual perceptions experiment and played Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 for them for half of an hour while they recorded my eye movements.

On another note: more people need to play volleyball with us!

Day 20

I made TONS of progress on the website today. I implemented the "My Stats" page and the ability to view past confusion matrices, as well as delete previous uploads. I feel a little more comfortable with javascript after today. I ran over my 80 hours last pay period because of the early and late collects, but oh well it was well worth helping with the research! Oh and note to self... don't forget the "?" in the php tag!

Day 19

Today had some pretty good ups and downs to it relating with the website. Dr. Kerekes is back from his conference, and when I tried to show him my progress, the email verification and downloading functions that worked before didn't. I spent most of the day fixing the download function, and implemented scoring today! The confusion matrix needs some cleaning up, then it's on to displaying past scores and overall top scores.
